People of Andaman and Nicobar Islands are often considered as soft spoken and highly docile individuals. This is perhaps the reason why even after several decades of Independence Andaman and Nicobar Islands did not get an assembly yet.
Often local residents claim that due to some incapable, coward and corrupt political leaders, people of Andaman and Nicobar Islands are being ruled by those, who have limited knowledge about Andaman and Nicobar Islands and feelings of Islanders.
After former Mr. Bishnu Pada Ray, now more and more public leaders are coming out in open and raising this issue of injustice infront public. In recent few interviews the former Member of Parliament of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, was very vocal against some recent decisions of Administration.
Now the present Adhyaksh of South Andaman Zilla Parishad, Mr. Subir Chander has also come out in open to raise voice of public. In his recent twitter message he wrote about how a few top officers are behaving roughly with local residents and misbehaving with public.
“4.5 lakh Islanders,21 IAS,16 IPS&55 DANIC/PS, some are gentle & caring but some are rough, misbehaving with public. They unaware of logistics and local problems, working without feedback, taking unilateral decision. People raising this voice to me,” he wrote in a twitter message today.
Recently talking to Andaman Sheekha, the SA ZP Adhyaksha also expressed his anguish over delay in brining stranded Islanders to Andaman.
“Had these Islands have an Assembly and a Chief Minister, they would have fought hard to bring the stranded Islanders from the mainland, hence, it is high time now to think about it and fight for our existence,” Mr. Chander said.
He also raised concerns over the present working style of Administration in which local leaders are not even consulted on the issue of bringing stranded Islanders from Mainland India. He said that on one hand local leaders are facing the anger of stranded Islanders in Mainland India and their family members, and on the other hand, the Administration is not sharing any information with public representatives, on this issue.
